Abstract

SMK Bakti Karya Parigi-Pangandaran, Indonesia, has a multicultural class program with 80 teenagers, including 45 males (56.25%), 35 females (43.75%), 63 Muslims (78.75%), 10 Catholics (12.5%), 7 Protestants (8.75%), 22 ethnic groups (0.061%), 25 districts (0.060%), and 18 provinces (53%). In the multicultural classroom of SMK Bakti Karya Parigi, all of these factors contribute to the cohesiveness necessary to preserve religious tolerance among adolescents. The study aimed to examine the social contact pattern between adolescents of different religions. Glock and Stark's grand theory of religiosity consists of the dimensions of belief, religious activity, religious experience, knowledge, and consequences. Produce three religious tolerance models at an early age: inclusivism, then pluralism, and finally multiculturalism. The research approach employed is descriptive analysis with mixed qualitative and quantitative research methodologies (mixed method research). Social engagement, cooperation, the celebration of religious holidays, discourse, and cultural interactions characterize the interaction pattern of adolescents of many religions.
